New Orleans remains is a bustling port city, very similar to how it was in the days of humans. Many travelers and traders stop here.

1.  Description

New Orleans is a post city along the Gulf of Mexico. Because of it's location, witch is greatly advantageous to trade, much of the city has been mostly rebuilt and occupied by permanent residents and travelers. It is easily one of the largest Lupeci inhabited cities in existence. The climate is Humid Subtropical. It is prone to hurricanes, witch are especially dangerous since human built tidal walls are crumbling. Summer heat and uncleanliness often causes infectious disease to become rampant. The population tends to fluxgate, decreasing during summer months and growing in the winter.

2.  Significance

If your area has a particular influence on 'Souls (e.g., a large number of immigrants come from this area, or a pack was founded on the basic beliefs of this area) write about it here! List any families that originate in your area:

3.  Culture

In the more populated areas, New Orleans tends to be a highly humanized city. Human technologies are valued and many canines chose to wear clothes - sometimes colorful and flamboyant. In these innermost parts of the city it is often looked down upon to walk on four paws.

Trading is important to the city, for it was occupied for it's access to both the Gulf of Mexico and the Mississippi River. Some even trade modified pieces of gold, silver, and copper in exchange for goods like humans might have used coins. Though trade is the main industry in Post-Apocalyptic New Orleans, it still remains the Las Vegas of the south. Clubs, Breweries, bars, and brothels are common. There is heavy culture influence from African, Spanish, and French species.

It is a common thing for wealthier patrons of the city to own slaves.

Outer parts of the city are often controlled by gangs.

French immigrants, native Canids, and African jackal immigrants have interbreed and formed a "Creole" culture in the rural outskirts and swamplands of the city.

3.1  Individuals

Zelime Rosaline Arthemise Sanite

Perhaps one of the most renowned voodo witches in the area, Zel is a slender creature with tawny brown fur and a slim, shapely head. She claims to be a Tesem, or an ancient (and very extinct) Egyptian hunting dog. Though she fits the profile -- with a desert-bred look about her -- Zel's claims are not based in reality.

Nonetheless, she enjoys a considerable amount of power. She resides, of course, in a decrepit mansion in the swamps surrounding New Orleans, a good distance from the city. Nonetheless, the path to her home is well-worn by canines seeking her favor, charms, and spells. Her servants consist of a troupe of young women who bear a look similar to her. Some are her daughters; still others are dog hybrids with the good fortune to be born tawny with a sighthound's features and build.

3.2  Species

Native species include Dogs, Texas Plains Coyote, Lower Rio Grande Coyote, and Red Wolves. Many Immigrants are common. Traders are usually European Common Grey Wolves and Middle Eastern Iranian Wolves. Slaves are usually, but not always, African species of Jackals, dogs, or coyotes.

What is the predominant species of your group? Refer to the species guide for realism! Remember that large groups of Luperci will not likely be of one species unless very isolated; in Europe this is especially true.

Creation Legends

Are there any myths widely believed by the populations there regarding the creation of Luperci, the creation of wolves, the creation of that particular society?
